About Chinchilla Minimap

Chinchilla Minimap alters the Blizzard Minimap in a way to provide much nicer features and other niceties.

Allows changing of blip size, border style, shape of the map (doesn't have to be circular, or even square, lots of options are available), size, etc.
A more flexible north-east-south-west indicator.
Show your location coordinates.
Make the minimap very big temporarily (good for gathering or finding a tough-to-spot enemy).
Show the name of your location more flexibly.
Move Buttons
Move the buttons around the minimap to wherever you want (even off the minimap entirely).
Show which team-mate pinged the minimap.
Position the minimap and frames around it.
Range Circle
Show on the minimap where your range extends to.
Show / Hide
Show or hide various frames related to the minimap.
Tracking Dots
Change the dots on the map to a different set of images. Very handy, especially if you suffer from colour-blindness
Use the mouse-wheel to zoom the minimap and zoom out the map automatically after 20 seconds (or so).

    Seem to have lost the calender as of last update.

    Confirmed calender is activated in options.

  • #1383

    Do you also have the "unread invites only" option checked?

    If not, check to see if you haven't accidentally dragged it off the screen or behind another button.

    Any chance to add button scale to the project? The Garrison button is HUEG.

    I know it was requested at least once below, i just want to follow up on that.

    I want to but haven't been able to yet.

    Curious, is there any reason this "Minimap:SetArchBlobRingScalar( 0 ); Minimap:SetQuestBlobRingScalar( 0 );" isn't built in to the code? Particularly for square map mode, it gets rid of the circular ring that appears when blue/red POI's extend out of the circle.

  • #1380

    It is for Blizzard's default minimap. On line 92 in Modules\Appearance.lua the code is there.

    Adding it to Chinchilla's large map should be no problem at all.

    The garrison report keybinding only works if the garrison button is visible.

    Can't see or do anything with the Quest Tracker since addon update to v2.7.1

  • #1372

    +1, Quest tracker position is broken since 2.7.1. Disabling Chinchilla fixes quest tracker. Chinchilla quest tracker relocation resets on disabling (being enabled quest tracker position can be adjusted to right spot, but has red taint).

  • #1375

    By "red taint" I meant a mark, that quest tracker is movable. Taint because it's unusable in this mode :). Sorry for bad wording.

    Tested 2.7.2 - looks fine in regards to quest tracker positioning.

    v2.7.2 changes everything back to how it was in v2.7. I am so tired and fed up of this.

    What did you mean by "red taint" though?

    Did another test with ALL mods disabled, but chinchilla - still tracker positioning issues.

    +more tries:

    Chinchilla Quest tracker Vertical position offset under 135 gets reset to -480 or something like that. Vertical position offset set to 135 or higher - quest tracker remains where it was set, though settings show some other value.

    Strange behavior.

    i cant get any buttons to display other than the tracking one.  what am i doing wrong :|

  • #1363

    I keep trying to move the minimap down just a bit so it doesn't sit directly at the top of the screen.  It works, till I enter and instance or relog then it's moved back up to it's original spot.  :( 

  • #1366

    Do you use a Broker display addon such as Bazooka that pushes other frames downwards? If you do, turning that feature off should solve it.
